These drop biscuits probably aren’t what you grew up eating (especially if you mainly ate canned biscuits like me), but they can satisfy a craving for bread. Enjoy them with soup or for breakfast in an egg sandwich or grain-free Eggs Benedict.
What makes these biscuits different?
These biscuits are too good to be true. HONESTLY! I no longer miss traditional buttermilk biscuits made with wheat flour. Almond flour is the leading player, but Cheddar cheese puts these on my A-list.
Greek yogurt keeps them tender and flaky. Since I make my own Greek yogurt, I try adding it to recipes whenever possible.
How to portion drop biscuits:
Because it’s easiest to portion these out with an ice cream scoop, they are similar to drop biscuits. If you wet your fingers, you can tap them down just a little to make a smooth top so they will cook more evenly. But don’t smash them too much.
